  • Time and Space

    Time and Space

    Surveying both historical debates and modern physics, Barry Dainton evaluates the central arguments in a clear and unintimidating way that keeps conceptual issues comprehensible to students with little scientific or mathematical training and makes the philosophy of space and time accessible to anyone trying to come to grips with the complexities of this challenging subject. With over 100 original line illustrations and a full glossary of...

  • Stars and Stellar Evolution

    Stars and Stellar Evolution

    The diverse forms that stars assume in the course of their lives can all be derived from the initial conditions : the mass and the original chemical composition. In this textbook Stars and Stellar Evolution the basic concepts of stellar structure and the main roads of stellar evolution are described. First, the observable parameters are presented, which are based on the radiation emerging from a stellar atmosphere.

  • Research on Soil Erosion

    Research on Soil Erosion

    The book is organized in a unique section collecting nine chapters focusing on a variety of aspects of the erosion phenomena. Soil loss for erosion is a natural phenomenon in soil dynamics, influenced by climate, soil intrinsic properties, and morphology, that can both trigger and enhance the process. Anthropic activities, like inappropriate agricultural practices, deforestation, overgrazing, forest fires and construction activities, may...

  • Scale Relativity And Fractal Space-Time: A New Approach to Unifying Relativity and Quantum Mechanics

    Scale Relativity And Fractal Space-Time: A New Approach to Unifying Relativity and Quantum Mechanics

    This book provides a comprehensive survey of the development of the theory of scale relativity and fractal space-time. It suggests an original solution to the disunified nature of the classical-quantum transition in physical systems, enabling the basis of quantum mechanics on the principle of relativity, provided this principle is extended to scale transformations of the reference system. In the framework of such a newly generalized relativity...

  • The Survival of Civilization Depends Upon Our Solving Three Problems: Carbon Dioxide, Investment Money and Population - Selected Papers of John D. Hamaker

    The Survival of Civilization Depends Upon Our Solving Three Problems: Carbon Dioxide, Investment Money and Population - Selected Papers of John D. Hamaker

    Might “global warming” be the source of the energy to fuel the next cloudy and snowy glacial period—an eventual severe global cooling? Ecologist and engineer John D. Hamaker was convinced of it, having studied the current state of the Biosphere and the 25 glacial-interglacial cycles of the last 2.5 million years.

    Catastrophe: An Investigation into the Origins of Modern Civilization

    It was a catastrophe without precedent in recorded history: for months on end, starting in A.D. 535, a strange, dusky haze robbed much of the earth of normal sunlight. Crops failed in Asia and the Middle East as global weather patterns radically altered.

    Japan

    It is one of the most amazing countries in the world. The Japanese call it Nippon or Nihon, meaning the source of the Sun. Others call it the Land of the Rising Sun.We call it Japan. This small nation of scattered islands off the eastern coast of mainland Asia is often called the “Miracle of the Orient.” It has risen from obscurity and self-imposed isolation to a position as a global economic giant in little more than a century. Yet...

    Expert Systems and Geographical Information Systems for Impact Assessment

    Impact assessment is increasingly becoming – mostly by statutory obligation but also for reasons of good practice – part and parcel of more and more development proposals in the United Kingdom and in Europe. For instance, while the Department of the Environment (DoE) in Britain was expecting about 50 Environmental Statements each year when this new practice was introduced in 1988, the annual number soon exceeded 300.
